A police union is suing New York City for making changes to officers’ health insurance plans without consulting them, according to court papers.

The new PBA suit says the changes will drive copays as high as $150 for an emergency room visit when it used to be just $50, the New York Post reports.

The union accuses the city of bypassing the mandated, one-on-one collective bargaining system and making the changes through a citywide group that represents municipal unions.

The new plan for municipal workers will amount to $3.4 billion in savings for the city, the suit says.
